Ham in the window

Da Rosa chorizo

2009 Albet i Noya Penedes

Almost serendipitously, walking down the street from our apartment, we found Da Rosa Restaurant. The most amazing jamón ibérico, including a selection of different breeds as well. And what to drink with the most perfect expression of pork in the world? A Spanish white wine, bien sur, 2009 Albet i Noya Lignum, Penedès. The wine did turn out to be 50/50 chardonnay and sauvignon but it was cheap, fresh, and cheerful. And I toasted to the wonderful black pigs that make me so, so happy.
